Before digital cameras came along, you had to set your "F stop" to the proper setting to have the right exposure for your photos. There was a saying among photojournalists: "F8 and be there."--set your camera to F8, and get to the scene ready to go. Not that much has changed, really.

Welcome to the Observer's Photo Blog

Truth be told, I wanted to be a photojournalist when I grew up.


"If your pictures aren't good enough, you aren't close enough."

"The pictures are there, and you just take them."

City Hall

Kansas City, Missouri's City Hall was built in the late 1930s, with all sorts of Art Deco frou frou. When it was finished, color film was still pretty uncommon. For some reason, City Hall just begs to be photographed in black and white. Here is just one of several cool photos of the inside of City Hall that I took on Thursday.

How much to reveal? There are some nutty people out there! Leave it to say right now that I am well educated, a person of the Christian faith, and never without an opinion.
